The four young hip kids of The Shoreline play average synth-touched pop-punk and are guilty ­— just like the rest of their genre’s latest batch of cohorts ­— of creating a Myspace page with far too many cartoon graphics and cutesy pics of themselves. It’s makes me nauseated even before listening to their music. Callahan, Pathway to Providence, Terra Terra Terra and The End of April back them up. Weds., Aug. 26, 7 p.m., Orpheum, 1902 E. Eight Ave., Ybor City, $8. -- Leilani Polk

Enjoy a relaxing end to each hump day at NoHo Bistro's tapas and wine tasting, Wine Wednesdays.  This month’s focus is the wines of California, and this today’s theme is Napa Valley -- but each week features new palate-pleasing pairings, so it's never just the same ol' grapes. Weds., Aug. 26, 6-7 p.m., NoHo Bistro, 1714 N. Armenia Ave., Tampa, $15, 813-514-0691.

BYOP (popcorn, that is!) and settle in for Movie Night at Brooker Creek.

Weds.., Aug. 26, 7-8 p.m., Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center, 3940 Keystone Rd., Tarpon Springs, free,
